Moving a tenant to another tenant


  • A partner/folder tenant can be moved only to a partner/folder tenant.

  • A customer tenant can be moved only to a partner/folder tenant.

  • A tenant cannot be moved to its child tenant.

  • A unit tenant cannot be moved.

  • A tenant can be moved only if the target parent tenant has the same or a larger set of services and offering items as the original parent tenant.

  • When moving a customer tenant, all storages assigned to the customer tenant in the original parent tenant must exist in the target parent tenant. This is required because the customer service-related data cannot be moved from one storage to another storage.

Step-by-step procedure

  1. Authenticate to the cloud platform via the Python shell.

    The following variables should be available now:

    >>> base_url  # the base URL of the API
    >>> auth  # the 'Authorization' header value with the access token
    {'Authorization': 'Bearer eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsImtpZCI6ImMwMD...'}
    >>> tenant_id  # the UUID of the tenant to which the token provides access
  2. Assign either of the following values to the tenant_id variable – the UUID of a sub-tenant created via the API or a sub-tenant found by its name:

    >>> tenant_id = created_tenant_id
    >>> tenant_id
  3. Obtain the number of the latest tenant revision. You will have to specify this number in a subsequent request to the tenant. This is required to manage concurrent tenant modifications.

    1. Fetch the tenant information as described in steps 3-5 of “Fetching information about an individual tenant”. As the result, you should have a tenant variable with the tenant object.

    2. Define a variable named tenant_version, and then assign the value of the version key from the tenant object to this variable:

      >>> tenant_version = tenant['version']
      >>> tenant_version
  4. Define a variable named tenant_update, and then assign an object containing the target tenant UUID to this variable:

    >>> tenant_update = {
    ...     'parent_id': '95303d96-628c-4265-9afa-07bee3fccf39',
    ...     'version': tenant_version,  # this key is required
    ... }
  5. Convert the tenant_update object to a JSON text:

    >>> tenant_update = json.dumps(tenant_update, indent=4)
    >>> print(tenant_update)
        "parent_id": "95303d96-628c-4265-9afa-07bee3fccf39",
        "version": 3
  6. Send a PUT request with the JSON text to the /tenants/{tenant_id} endpoint:

    >>> response = requests.put(
    ...     f'{base_url}/tenants/{tenant_id}',
    ...     headers={'Content-Type': 'application/json', **auth},
    ...     data=tenant_update,
    ... )
  7. Check the status code of the response:

    >>> response.status_code

    Status code 200 means that the platform has moved the tenant to the tenant with UUID 95303d96-628c-4265-9afa-07bee3fccf39.

    A different status code means that an error has occurred. For the details, refer to “Status and error codes”.
